By This River by Brian Eno

This piece was played in La Stanza del Figlio by Nanni Moretti. It is part of the 1977 album "Before and After Science".

Here we are
Stuck by this river,
You and I
Underneath a sky that's ever falling down, down, down
Ever falling down.

Through the day
As if on an ocean
Waiting here,
Always failing to remember why we came, came, came:
I wonder why we came.

You talk to me
as if from a distance
And I reply
With impressions chosen from another time, time, time,
From another time.
